For you American Civil War buffs…
This is a masterful work by a historian who actually knew Civil War vets as a boy and loved their stories. It is as well written as any history I’ve read. One senses the read is almost like being there.
Bruce Catton, a Pulitzer Prize winner, has the rare talent of making history come alive with his words. The book consists of the best essays he’s ever written per the editor who was a friend and colleague of Mr. Catton. I think he is probably right as the read is really engrossing in this artfully crafted piece. I highly recommend it, particularly to history buffs like me.
